Because it’s such a dirty word. Snip from Girls Suspended Over ‘Vagina Monologues’:
A public high school has suspended three students who disobeyed officials by saying the word “vagina” during a reading from a well-known feminist play.
The honor students, Megan Reback, Elan Stahl and Hannah Levinson, included the word during their reading of “The Vagina Monologues” because, “It wasn’t crude and it wasn’t inappropriate and it was very real and very pure,” Reback said.
Their defiant stand is being applauded by the play’s author, who said Tuesday that the school should be celebrating, rather than punishing, the three juniors.
